Watch: Sir Ian Botham’s wine launch video

Sir Ian Botham OBE officially launched his own range of wines in the UK at Lord’s cricket ground last month. Watch the video to find out what the wine trade made of them…


Botham’s range comprises varietal Chardonnays, Shirazes and Cabernets across three tiers, all of which hail from Australia.

At the entry-level is the ‘All Rounder’, with a mid-tier range called ‘The Botham Series’, and then, at the top, priced between £35 and £40, is the ‘Sir Ian Botham’ range.\

Grapes are sourced from the Adelaide Hills and Margaret River for the Chardonnays, and Barossa and Coonawarra for the Shirazes and Cabernets respectively.

Speaking to the drinks business at the launch, Botham said that the range would be augmented by Pinot Noir from Central Otago in New Zealand, and, in the future, another Pinot from Mornington Peninsula in Australia.

He also said that he would like to add a Malbec from Argentina, a red wine from Spain, and an English sparkling, possibly using grapes from a producer in Devon.
